NORMAN, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma soccer team secured a spot in postseason play Friday with a 3-0 win over the Kansas Jayhawks, setting up a Bedlam matchup in the opening round of the Big 12 tournament.

Keeper Kelsey Devonshire did not face many tests in order to keep the clean sheet, stopping just four KU shots on goal in the win. Devonshire had struggled leading up to the game, giving up an average of two goals per game this season.

The Sooners' took the lead early in the game, thanks to a 25-yard free kick from Annalisa Hall in the 14th minute of play.

Oklahoma held onto the slim lead well into the second half, but in the 55th minute mark Amy Petrikin headed in a corner from Dria Hampton to score her sixth goal of the year and put the Sooners up 2-0. Hampton came up with her second assist of the game just six minutes later, setting up Caitlin Mooney to score from 10-yards out and put the game out of reach,.

With a regular-season win over Iowa State and the overall points lead, OU is assured the No. 8 spot in the Big 12 tournament, but has to Bedlam rival – and No. 2 nationally – Oklahoma State in the opening game.

The Big 12 tournament begins at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 2, with the Sooners taking on Oklahoma State at 5:30 that evening.
